That’s why I think it’s always a good idea to have a list of stocks you’d purchase on any sustained period of weakness in the market. Perhaps concerns over the impact of coronavirus on the global economy may give investors that opportunity in time.Two firms that feature on my own watchlist are FTSE 100 pest control business Rentokil Initial (LSE: RTO) and FTSE 250 kitchen supplier Howdens Joinery (LSE: HWDN), who both released results to the market today. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Organic growerOngoing revenue at £9bn-cap Rentokil rose 8.6% at constant currency to £2.68bn over 2019. Positively, 4.5% of this was organic (generated internally rather than through acquisitions) and driven by “increasing presence in growth markets, higher levels of customer retention and a strong innovation programme.” Pre-tax profit came in at £338.5m. Considering the non-cyclical nature of its business, I consider Rentokil’s outlook to be very positive. Indeed, according to CEO Andy Ransom, “key demographic trends such as urbanisation” should lead to more growth in pest control and hygiene markets across the globe.Given all this, it’s perhaps no surprise that the company saw fit to hike its final dividend to 3.64p per share. This brings the total payout for the 2019 financial year to 5.15p per share, representing a 15.2% increase on the previous year. While Rentokil’s 1.1% yield remains very low relative to some in the FTSE 100, the fact that it’s regularly increasing its dividends is a very positive sign, in my book.All told, I remain very interested in acquiring a slice of this company. That said, 32 times forecast earnings does seem quite a high price to pay in such as nervous market. It stays on the watchlist for now.Another hikerLike Rentokil, today’s numbers from Howdens were also positive, with group revenue rising 4.8% to £1.58bn and pre-tax profit moving a very solid 9.3% higher to £260.7m. Like Rentokil, this is a company with strong growth prospects. Having opened 44 depots in 2019, Howdens believes it can increase its presence in the UK from 732 to 850 depots while also developing its digital platform.Like Rentokil, Howdens is also a reliable dividend hiker. Today’s final dividend of 9.1p per share brought the total payout to 13p per share — a little over 12% higher than in the 2018 financial year.What I particularly like about Howdens though, is its financial discipline. The £4bn-cap boasted £267.4m of net cash on its balance sheet at the end of the year — just the sort of thing that would give me confidence if a downturn in the economy is coming.Whether this happens as a result of the coronavirus is, of course, hard to say. With regard to the outbreak, Howdens said it was “monitoring” its supply chain and had increased stock levels from product it sources from China. It had also taken steps to find alternative sources of supply. This all sounds very prudent to me. Again, however, the valuation needs to be considered. Having done so well over the last year, Howden’s stock now trades on almost 19 times earnings. Although nowhere near Rentokil’s valuation, that’s still fairly high, relative to its industry. As such, I’m hoping for a cheaper entry point in the next few months.

Bath scrum-half Max Green on his rugby journeyThe road less travelled is certainly an appropriate way to describe the path traversed by Bath scrum-half and Yorkshire Carnegie Academy product Max Green, who went from representing Sweden U18 as a 16-year-old fly-half to facing up against European powerhouses Toulouse in the Heineken Champions Cup last month.Green, 22, may not have been one of the most eye-catching additions to the Gallagher Premiership in the past year given the abundance of star names migrating to the top tier of English rugby.However, for all the Charles Piutaus and Lima Sopoagas drawing headlines, Green will have caught the attention of more people following his Champions Cup debut at the Rec.Born and raised in Yorkshire, he qualified for Sweden through his mother and was already visiting the Scandinavian nation most Christmases and summers in his youth.Whilst in the hunt for a spot in Carnegie’s academy, Green was contacted by the Swedish Rugby Union, which had learnt that the Yorkshire County U15 player was eligible, and he accepted the offer to link up with Sweden for a three-day camp.Kicking on: Bath’s Max Green clears when facing Exeter (Getty Images)“They (Sweden) sent me an email saying that they’d heard I’d got a bit of Swedish blood in me,” Green says. “And they were interested in me coming over for a camp. I think it was an U18 camp and I was about 15 at the time.“I went over in the summer, saw the family and then went up to the U18 training camp, which lasted for about three days in Enköping – a tiny little village but they love their rugby there.“It was decent, it was something different. I wasn’t on the England radar at the time or anything like that. I was very young and just trying to enjoy my rugby. I thought it was a good bit of fun, to be honest.”After getting his first taste of an international set-up against Denmark, Green went on to face the likes of Poland and Spain as well as tour with his adopted national side to Grenoble.His talent was later spotted by England and he was part of the U20 side that won the Junior World Cup in Manchester. By then he was a scrum-half, but he actually entered the Carnegie Academy and Sweden U18 side as a young stand-off.“It’s actually where I first started out,” Green explains. “I basically played all over but just found myself at ten, it was where I felt most comfortable. But then I was moved to nine because they couldn’t really see me progressing as a ten.Final flourish: Max Green in action during the U20 World Cup final in 2016 (Getty Images)“It was a good move for me, I was happy with it. I understood the role of it. The passing wasn’t hard, it was just the kicking game and my game understanding that took quite a while to catch up. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “I mean, the competition is fierce, but we all get on, on and off the pitch. It’s more of a healthy competition really.”Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. “I was doing a lot of extra sessions with a coach who was a good family friend, called Joe Bestford. I’d go Tuesdays and Thursdays to a local club called Sandal and do two hours with him, just passing and kicking, making sure my skill-set was up to scratch.”Green’s breakthrough campaign for Carnegie came the season after his final positional switch, establishing himself as a regular first-team player at the age of 19, and then moving to Bath last November.Green is amongst a plethora of Yorkshire products to establish themselves in the Premiership and is joined by two of his former Carnegie colleagues at Farleigh House.Hooker Jack Walker and centre Max Wright also emerged from Green’s age group, while Northampton Saints and England tighthead Paul Hill and Harlequins loosehead Lewis Boyce also rose from the same crop of Yorkshire youngsters.“They (Carnegie) had a really good pathway at the time in the way they were managing it. They had the partnership with Prince Henry’s Grammar School, which had the age programme based there.“They kept the squad together. We went to school together, we were in lessons together, we were training together, so we were quite a tight bunch of lads.“We were always really trying to push ourselves as players around each other, so it was a really good environment to be in.”Competition: Chris Cook breaks to score a try against Saracens (Getty Images)At Bath, there is plenty of competition at scrum-half – Samoan international Kahn Fotuali’i, Will Chudley, who helped Exeter win the Premiership in 2017, Chris Cook (100+ Bath appearances) and former London Irish man (120+ apps) Darren Allinson.Yet Green’s game time has increased significantly this season, with Fotuali’i and Chudley both ruled out with injuries early in the campaign.“I’ve been quite lucky, to be honest,” Green admits. “I didn’t really expect to play as many games as I have. I’ve tried to push Chris Cook for a spot, and I guess I have.

Foto: Lynette Wilson / ENS[Episcopal News Service – Tegucigalpa, Honduras] Durante los últimos 35 años El Hogar ha servido los casos más difíciles en Honduras de los niños y niñas, algunos de los cuales han sido abusados, descuidados y abandonados.“Hay algunos que no tienen familias, y sabemos con certeza que algunos cuyos padres han fallecido, los niños han quedado huérfanos por completo”, dijo Claudia de Castro, directora de El Hogar.Con un personal de 80 personas y tres campus, El Hogar tiene capacidad para un máximo de 250 estudiantes. El Hogar va más allá de proveer las necesidades básicas de alimentación, vestido y educación; proporciona amor y cuidado por lo general proporcionada por una familia, dijo de Castro.Claudia de Castro, directora de El Hogar, ha estado en la escuela residencial durante 24 años. Foto: Lynette Wilson / ENS“En este lugar se puede ver la presencia de Dios que se mueve en torno a estos niños”, dijo de Castro. “Este es un lugar de milagros; sólo Dios puede sanar sus corazones. Son pequeños que han sufrido mucho “De Castro compartió un ejemplo:Un niño vino a El Hogar después del asesinato de su madre, jurando venganza. “Él vino aquí, y él era agresivo”,dijo.Entonces, un día durante la oración de la mañana, el muchacho, conmovido por la lección sobre el perdón, decidió perdonar al asesino de su madre. Hoy en día el muchacho es uno de los mejores estudiantes de El Hogar, y está en la lista de honor.En otro ejemplo de Castro en la residencia, los estudiantes estaban comiendo en un Pizza Hut y había niños pidiendo comida fuera del restaurante. Una vez que estaban afuera, los chicos les dieron a los niños sus zapatos.“A menudo compartimos las cosas que ya no queremos, pero estos niños estaban dando los únicos zapatos que tienen”, dijo. “Se sienten ricos”.Sesenta por ciento del 7,9 millones de habitantes de Honduras vive en la pobreza, y el 35 por ciento de la población está por debajo de la edad de 15. Los desastres naturales y la mala situación de seguridad del país – Honduras tiene el más alto índice de homicidios en el mundo, que puede estar ligada con el narcotráfico y pandilla de violencia – y contribuye a la gran cantidad de hondureños que se unen a otros centroamericanos en el viaje hacia el norte de los Estados Unidos.En los últimos años el número de menores indocumentados que cruzan la frontera México-Estados Unidos se ha elevado a más de 20,000, muchos de ellos jóvenes que escapan de la pobreza y la violencia en Centroamérica.El Hogar es una de las muchas organizaciones no gubernamentales basadas en la fe, registrada en Estados Unidos que sirve en situación de riesgo y abandono de los jóvenes en Honduras. El Hogar ha graduado a 750 estudiantes de los últimos años.Las niñas estudian junto a los muchachos en Tegucigalpa el campus de El Hogar, luego los muchachos optan por asistir a la escuela técnica o para estudiar las prácticas agrícolas en la granja. Las niñas se mudan a una casa fuera de la capital donde asisten a la escuela secundaria. Foto: Lynette Wilson / ENSEn 1979, un grupo de los episcopales de la iglesia de Santa María en Tegucigalpa alquiló una vieja casa en un barrio pobre y comenzóEl Hogar con cinco chicos los que encontraron viviendo y durmiendo en las calles. Al final del primer año, la casa estaba llena y otra casa de 20 camas fue construida para acomodar a los niños adicionales; aun la población continuó creciendo. Cuando comenzó El Hogar, los muchachos estaban siendo abandonados a razón de 10 a 1, de acuerdo con suhistoria.Antes de que un niño ingrese a El Hogar, un miembro del personal hace una visita a la familia para evaluar el ambiente del niño y saber acerca de su historia. Fue durante las visitas de los familiares, que el personal se dio cuenta que las niñas por lo general se quedan en casa para cuidar a los niños más pequeños, explicó de Castro.Así, El Hogar abrió para aceptar niñas en 2007 y, 28 niñas, de los grados de kindergarten a sexto grado, hoy viven allí. Los 10 restantes viven en la Casa de Niñas, una casa en las cercanías de Santa Lucía, y asisten a la escuela secundaria. Tener niñas en la escuela no fue fácil, pero con el tiempo los niños y las niñas comenzaron “a interactuar como hermanos y hermanas”, dijo de Castro.Los niños que se gradúan de sexto grado tienen la opción de asistir a la Escuela Técnica de Santa María, ubicado a 30 minutos a las afueras de Tegucigalpa, donde eligen estudiar una habilidad profesional, soldadura, carpintería, instalación eléctrica, o se trasladan a la Escuela Agrícola de Amor y Esperanza, una granja de trabajo, a una hora de la capital, para estudiar la agricultura y la ganadería.La tendencia de los servicios a la familia en Honduras es trabajar en la construcción de las estructuras familiares sanas “, pero para algunos, no hay a dónde ir”, dijo el Rdo. Mathew Engleby, director ejecutivo y un misionero nombrado por la Iglesia Episcopal.Los estudiantes de El Hogar viven en dormitorios. Foto: Lynette Wilson / ENSAl ir más allá de la provisión y la educación y la satisfacción de las necesidades básicas de los estudiantes, el personal, incluyendo el veterano Lázaro Juárez que sirve por 35 años supervisa la escuela técnica, conoce las realidades de violencia que enfrentan los estudiantes fuera de los muros de El Hogar.“Podemos mantenerlos a salvo aquí, pero cuando van afuera y a sus hogares, las cosas son diferentes”, dijo Juárez, quien agregó que al proporcionar a los estudiantes una educación, valores y habilidades para el trabajo, la esperanza es fortalecer su carácter y desarrollar sus defensas.El Hogar funciona con un presupuesto de $ 1,2 millones, aproximadamente la mitad de los cuales depende del apadrinamiento de niños y el resto en la recaudación de fondos en los Estados Unidos y Canadá. “Siempre vamos a depender de las donaciones para cambiar las vidas de estos niños”, dijo Engleby,Sarah Upshur, 15, y su madre, Kim Echlin en marzo pasaron una semana visitando a los estudiantes y pintando las paredes exteriores en El Hogar. Madre e hija se unieron a un grupo de Forest Grove Iglesia Unida en Toronto, Ontario. Foto: Lynette Wilson / ENSAdemás, El Hogar dirige un Programa de Equipo de Servicio a través de la cual los equipos de América del Norte pueden visitar el campus de Tegucigalpa y la granja. El programa es de aplicación sólo y los equipos reciben un manual de visitante de 60 páginas; Actualmente hay una lista de espera de un año de duración.“Ellos pasan el tiempo aquí”, dijo de Castro. “No tenemos un hotel de cinco estrellas, pero la gente aquí es feliz y pacífica. No son sólo los niños; Dios cambia la vida de toda la gente aquí”.Los equipos suelen realizar proyectos de servicio que pueden incluir edificios de pintura y otras tareas de mantenimiento, pero la atención se centra en la interacción con los estudiantes.“Se trata de conocer a los niños y conocer sus historias”, dijo Engleby, y agregó que si dices que has pintado una pared, no has entendido.– Lynette Wilson es una editora/reportera para Episcopal News Service.

Most farmers battled unfavorable weather and some tackled diseases. New A series soybeans from DuPont Pioneer helped some farmers come out on top after the tough growing season. Pat Arthur serves as category leader for DuPont Pioneer. Arthur talks about the company’s new line of soybeans, called the A-series soybeans and how the series helped farmers get a leg up in the dry growing season. “Across the Corn Belt, we saw a really stellar performance with some varieties that have been developed specifically for the area,” Arthur said. “A new 31 variety, called P31A22X, that actually had a 4.8 bushel yield advantage in our trials.”A-series soybeans features a class of varieties. DuPont Pioneer refers to the series as the “highest yielding series ever introduced.” Arthur says the series success started at Pioneer’s research engine.“In 2010, we transformed the way we bring varieties to the market,” Arthur said. “We added new breeding locations across the country, to focus in on varieties specific to the area, making sure those varieties have the specific agronomic traits growers need.” Arthur says DuPont Pioneer is able to help farmers boost yields with those specific traits.Source: DuPont Pioneer SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Jan 16, 2018
Facebook Twitter Money Minute: Relationships, A Key Component of Farm Lending Money Minute: Relationships, A Key Component of Farm LendingIn this week’s edition of Money Minute, AgriFinancials’ Mike Reed talks about something that does not show up on the balance sheet, isn’t part of cash flow, and can’t be amortized. Yet, it plays a big role in most financial transactions that involve family farming operations. It is the personal relationship you have with your lender. “Farmers are a bit different, they like to have relationship with their lender,” Reed states.Reed points out that, when he works with a farmer customer, he gets to know the whole family, “As a farm lender, we like to be able to know the wife and the kids.” He adds, when it comes to making major decisions about the farm, the spouse and family members do have a role to play and their opinions and observations should be heard.Challenging times like we currently have in agriculture are when these relationships become the most important. Reed says, “When you get into a situation where things are up and down, that relationship and understanding is critical. It is always our desire to stick with people in the good times and the bad times.”AgriFinancial has partnered with Hoosier Ag Today to produce this informational series designed to provide quality, financial advice and information for farmers during these challenging economic times.For more information, contact Agri Financial at www.cgb-agfi.com.

By NAFB News Service – Oct 13, 2020 Home Indiana Agriculture News Uptick in Combine Fires With Dry Weather A warm and dry fall across the Midwest has farmers harvesting in ideal conditions. Unfortunately, hot and dry harvest weather increases risks for combine fires, and there’s been what seems to be an increasing rate of them this year.Josie Rudolphi is an assistant professor of agricultural safety and health extension specialist at the University of Illinois. She says the majority of combine fires occur because the machine is not properly cleaned.“The major causes of combine fires, it typically would be like ignition of trash or debris, organic matter that’s moving through the combine, it gets hot, gets clogged up, and it may then result in a combine fire.”Near perfect weather this harvest season has farmers hustling through fields. She says it’s important to address routine maintenance, even when things are going well.“We want to make sure that we’re performing kind of routine maintenance on the combine, and it’s a little bit challenging, especially when we’ve been moving good and we’re getting stuff done. routine maintenance can sometimes kind of fall to the wayside. It’s been what we consider ideal harvest conditions in most parts of the Midwest. Those rain days are typically the days we perform a lot of routine maintenance and without those rain days we just go, go, go, we don’t always check our machines like we should. We think everything is going really, really, well, and we just don’t want to jinx it.”Rudolphi says it is best to take a few minutes to clear debris from the machine at the start of each day and tackle a few other preventative maintenance checks.“At the end of the day, it’s a little more challenging, you don’t want to obviously be too engaged with the machine that could be hot, which is another kind of reminder of not parking a hot machine in a building because it could result in not only combine fire but a structure fire. But definitely starting the day with a routine check, removing any debris, checking on your wires, your hoses, to make sure that there’s no frayed wires, electrical wires especially, and no leaky hydraulic hoses.”Rudolphi recommends having the right tools with you in the field.“It’s very easy and that’s a good recommendation to have an air compressor on the back of a truck, have a leaf blower, have the tools that you need to make sure that you can get all the debris cleaned out. Having those things available is really key to some of this routine maintenance because if the tool is not there, it’s a lot easier to sort of skip the steps. And then, thinking about prevention, we also want to make sure that we are prepared for a fire, we have fire extinguishers not only on the combine but also on another vehicle in the field.”Additionally, Rudolphi reminds farmers that while working in the field, if you need to address an issue with the machine, shut it off.“If you are going to perform any maintenance on a machine, the machine needs to be turned off. And we would encourage even beyond that implementing some sort of lockout-tagout, and what that means is that you’ve turned the machine off and locked it out in such a way that nobody else can turn it on. In a combine, it’s very easy, pull the keys so that you know the machine is off, and you also know that nobody else is going to turn the machine on.” Facebook Twitter Previous articleCorn Drying Down Fast in Western IndianaNext articleCorn Drying Down Fast in Western Indiana on the HAT Wednesday Podcast NAFB News Service SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Uptick in Combine Fires With Dry Weather
IndiaAsia – Pacific IndiaAsia – Pacific News Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) condemned the murder on 31 January of Parvaz Mohammed Sultan, owner and editor of the local news agency News and Feature Alliance (NAFA), in the summer capital, Srinagar. It called on the state’s chief minister and the federal home affairs minister to quickly arrest and try those responsible.Sultan, 35, was shot dead at his home-cum-office in the city’s Press Enclave (where most media are based) by two gunmen suspected by the police of being armed separatists. He was wounded in the neck and died shortly afterwards.

Experian Health’s work with Epic, one of the largest health information software companies at the scale of 250 million patient records worldwide, leverages a decade-long integration to address an emerging, critical need to support a more efficient and secure COVID-19 testing and vaccination process. Together, the companies are providing the customers with a state-of-the-art identity proofing, risk-based authentication solution with an expedited implementation process. “We are very pleased to be collaborating with Epic to make this essential tool readily available for healthcare organizations so they can ensure their patient authentication tool is turn-key,” said Tom Cox, general manager, Experian Health. “With the uptick in fraud since the pandemic started, coupled with the need to efficiently verify patient identities in activities tied to Covid-19 testing and vaccine distribution, we know our authentication solution can aid providers with both security and speed.” This new rapid response implementation is driven by best practices embedded in Epic MyChart®. Precise ID offers several operational benefits including streamlining patient portal enrollment, eliminating manual work processes for staff, and preventing long call center wait times for patients. Last year, it verified nearly 1 billion identities assisting individuals in their journey to access healthcare information, verify employment status, and access personal financial applications and websites. The product is used by more than 2,000 organizations spanning many industries in addition to healthcare such as government, financial services, retail and insurance. This offering complements several other solutions Experian Health has launched for the healthcare industry since the pandemic began, including a free Payer Alerts Portal that provides the latest COVID-19 and telehealth payer policy alerts, and the free COVID Outlook & Response Evaluator Model, a heat map of geographical populations across the U.S. most susceptible to developing cases of severe COVID-19.
